JARA-FIT Institutes

The JARA-FIT Institutes were founded in order to consolidate collaboration between Aachen and Jülich in the field of information technology and to strengthen strategic developments.

By jointly managing existing infrastructure and jointly planning, applying for, and procuring future infrastructure, the scientific output of the existing configuration is consolidated and increased, and prospects for realizing large-scale projects are optimized and strengthened.

The JARA institutes are headed collegially by several directors and are located at both Aachen and Jülich. The heads of institute are also JARA professors.
